Corsair has introduced the Flash Survivor family – USB 2.0 flash drives that feature 256-bit encryption and can withstand the elements. The Flash Survivor series has Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer seals which allow the drives to be waterproof for up to 200 meters and Computer Numerical Control milled aluminum coupled with rubber moulded collar shielding for shock and vibration resistance. There will initially be two variants of the new USB 2.0 drives made available: the 4GB Flash Survivor ($59.99) and the 8GB Flash Survivor GT ($129.99). The Flash Survivor GT will offer read speeds of 34MB/sec and write speeds of 23MB/sec. The Corsair Flash Survivor drives are available now from authorized retailers and come with a 10-year limited warranty.
"Corsair has built the Flash Survivor family specifically for customers with a "Bring It On!" attitude, someone who doesn't want to worry if his/her equipment can stand up to the active lifestyle they lead. Storing your valuable information on a USB flash drive capable of weathering the storm of everyday life while ensuring your data is safe -- that is what Flash Survivor is all about," said Corsair VP of Marketing Jack Peterson.
